Week of June 24-28, 2013 Summer Cruise 8 (Week 2) 

Summer Cruise 8 Week 2

Day 1 

It's Week 2 of Summer Cruise 8 with for King & Country. Luke and Joel kicked off the Florida leg of the Summer Cruise tour in studio with The Morning Cruise. If only they could pronounce the names of the towns they will be stopping in.  Carmen's mom did some research and found out that Joel has been busy with a budding movie career. Oh, and last night, a friend of The JOY FM and The Morning Cruise walked a tightrope across the Grand Canyon. Congratulations to Nik Wallenda!

Day 2 


The Summer Cruise made a pit stop at Dee's Place in Sebring and a packed house greeted the Aussies known as for King & Country. Before they took the stage this morning, we heard from Joel's fiancee, Moriah Peters and challenged the couple to the 'Almost Newlywed Game'. After they treated the crowd to a few of their songs, we had a little more fun with the accents. The residents of Nashville, TN, Joel and Luke, showed off their southern accents while Dave and Bill "attempted" Australian accents.
